"Every WOD Fights Cancer!"
It was five years ago today that I was diagnosed with breast cancer. I was always pretty active, and in the best shape of my life after running and working out with a personal trainer for the year prior.
One week after I completed treatment, my husband and I moved to Hendersonville, North Carolina. I looked for a gym and similar type of training and found CrossFit HVL. The one-hour workouts (or WODs) included cardio, strength training and coaching in a small group.
Now that I’ve worked out at CrossFit HVL for the past three and a half years, I am even stronger and more fit than my pre-cancer condition. And at 57, I continue to build strength, stamina and learn new skills.
A major part of maintaining my healthy is being a member of this CrossFit HVL community. Not only do I get the necessary physical training, but I am supported and encouraged by skilled and professional coaching and a caring community of friends and families. We’re all on a health journey together.
